This weekend, all three NASCAR National Touring Series head to the Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. The “Tricky Triangle” should make for must-watch TV, and here is how you can follow the action.

Craftsman Truck Series: CRC Brakleen 150

When: Saturday, July 22, 12:00 PM ET

How to Watch: FS1

How to Listen: Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90 OR on your local MRN Affiliate.

What to Watch For: The Truck Series has entered the final two week stretch before the Playoffs, and the bubble is very tight. Four drivers sit within five points of the Playoff cut line (Matt DiBenedetto +5, Nick Sanchez +2, Matt Crafton +1, Stewart Friesen -1) with an outside chance for Tanner Gray (-24) and Chase Purdy (-49). Kyle Busch and Christopher Bell are both entered in the race with Xfinity Series full-timer Austin Hill driving the Spire Motorsports number-7 truck.

Xfinity Series: Pocono 225

When: Saturday, July 22, 5:30 PM ET

How to Watch: USA or on the NBC Sports App.

How to Listen: Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90 OR on your local MRN Affiliate.

What to Watch For: A few interesting names are on the entry list for this race including full-time Cup drivers Ty Dillon in the Richard Childress Racing number-3 car and Chase Elliott in the Hendrick Motorsports number-17 car. The Playoff bubble tightened a bit following the last race at New Hampshire with Parker Kligerman only 18 points behind Riley Herbst for that final Playoff spot. Noah Gragson, last year’s winner, is not entered in this race.

Cup Series: HighPoint.com 400

When: Sunday, July 23, 2:30 PM ET

How to Watch: USA or on the NBC Sports App

How to Listen: Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90 OR on your local MRN Affiliate.

What to Watch For: The regular season championship lead swapped hands after New Hampshire with Martin Truex Jr. taking the lead by 17 points over William Byron. The Playoff bubble has also tightened with Bubba Wallace (+2), Michael McDowell (+1), Daniel Suarez (-1), and A.J. Allmendinger (-20) all within 20 points of the Playoff cut line. Chase Elliott (-60) and Alex Bowman (-41) remain on the outside looking in, but Elliott won the race at Pocono last July after Denny Hamlin failed inspection.

A doubleheader on Saturday with the Cup race on Sunday means a fun weekend of racing in the Pocono Mountains. Which drivers will find success this weekend at Pocono?
